A couple of weekends ago, we split the kids (one went to Granny, one went to Ouma), and after not the best of date night ever (couldn’t locate the restaurant we wanted to try, settled for mediocre, in the middle of a renovation, Spur, and then watched a mediocre Charlize Theron drama/thriller at Ster Kinekor), we headed out bright and early on the Saturday morning, embarking on our whirlwind flowers on the West Coast adventure!
To start things off though, we needed breakfast, and following some good advice from Chantelle’s baking friends, we hunted down Beulah’s Farm Deli, which stands alongside the R27 at the Yzerfontein/Darling crossing.
The exterior is… ‘charming’ in a rundown farm stall kind of way, but inside is where the real magic lies.
The tiny deli section of this vintage (but trendy modern) decorated farm stall is stocked with some exquisite farm products, a lot of these being meat (pork) related because Beulah also plays host Eighteen94 CureSmiths, experts in the age old charcuterie style of food preservation.
(This of course then translates to a lot of delicious pork/bacon making it onto Beulah’s delectable menu.)
The coffee is good, but believe me, the breakfast is even better. Well presented, full of flavour, and with a feel of being prepared by someone who loves food and is well trained/watches a lot of fancy cooking shows.
Needless to say, Chantelle and I left there in absolute heaven, hunger sated and ready for the next step of our little breakaway journey!
